Our Trading Strategy
All of our algorithms utilize a trend following strategy that aims to ride out trends in financial instruments for as long as possible while optimizing profits. Our fully automated algorithms trade in both long and short positions on a short term basis. We also do not manually intervene in any individual trades, as we prefer to make continuous adjustments to the algorithm itself to impact and improve our trading.
We offer our trading strategy in 2 different algorithmic managed futures programs that trade in many different futures contracts (ASX 200 Index, Hang Seng Index, DAX Index, Emini S&P 500, Crude Oil, Natural Gas, Gold, Copper, the Euro, the Australian Dollar, and others). From a philosophical standpoint, we aspire for our trading strategy to be able to profit from all major intraday and short term price moves from the most volatile and liquid futures contracts. Please note that futures trading involves risk of loss and is not suitable for everyone.
Additional Information On Our Strategy
Renko charts facilitate the development and effectiveness of an algorithm since these charts clean up price action and smooth out indicators, such as moving averages. Additionally, algorithms based on Renko charts tend to execute more quickly than algorithms based on candlestick charts since a time interval is not required to be completed before executing a trade (algorithms typically execute after a bar is formed). This especially comes in handy during fast moving markets, which is often the case with crude oil.
All of our algorithms utilize a trend following strategy that aims to ride out trends in financial instruments for as long as possible while optimizing profits. From a philosophical standpoint, we aim to capture all major trends in the price of a given instrument, so that you can profit from major market moves in either direction, up or down.
Furthermore, our algorithms exit their trades on a “show me” basis, meaning that we need to see sufficient proof that the price of an instrument is going against us (or moving opposite of the direction that we desire) before we exit a trade. From a philosophical standpoint, we simply believe that trades which are exited on a profit target basis are hasty and undesirable.
Additionally, we sometimes implement a trailing stop on our total daily profit during less volatile periods, such as the summer months. We may also choose to either set daily profit targets or turn off our algorithms during days which are expected to lack volatility in the summer.
